or break week for president obama and governor romney. hunkering down, cramming for the big debate. what are their secrets to land the knockout punch? >>> peanut butter. a massive recall expanding tonight. we'll tell you which symptoms could spell trouble for you and your family. >>> and, oscar stunner. the new host for the academy awards. not a movie star. why fans of the "family guy" are having the last laugh tonight. >> victory is mine! >>> good evening from "world news." and we begin with breaking news. an american airlines plane has been forced to land under strange circumstances. a whole row of seats shaken loose,passengers upended. and this is the second time seats have come loose and forced a landing in three days. so, what is going on? for the latest on what happened today, let's go right to abc's senior national correspondent, jim avila. >> 685, what can i do for you? >> roger. got an unusual one for you. >> reporter: no one can remember this happening before. not passengers, so rattled they didn't want to be identified. >> the seats flipped backwards and, so, people were essen
plan as just one more version of, quote, trickle down economics. romney did some major cleanup work yesterday on the comment that had been the most damaging to his campaign in the last few weeks, the 47% comment. >> clearly, in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you'll say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that is just completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about a hundred percent. >> that's what he said. everything he said there he said was completely wrong. does raise this question. how many resets can a presidential nominee have? take a look at romney's shifting responses over the last three weeks on 47% to put it all in perspective. >> as i point out i recognize that among those that pay no tax approximately 47% of americans i'm not likely to be highly successful with a message of lowering taxes. you know, it's not elegantly stated. let me put it that way. i am speaking off the cuff in response to a question. i've got a very effective
that government romney won the first debate hands down and that the president was off his game. >> you have been president four years. you said you would cut the deficit in half. we still have trillion dollar deficits. >> five weeks before the election, he says his big bold idea is, never mind. >> if there is any good news for the president after the debate is that the unemployment rate dropped below 8% from 8.1%, to 7.8%, the lowest since he took office. jonathan martin was on the ground for the debate in denver. you say romney took the debate stage with the top republican verging on panic. did this turnaround for them? >> they are backing away from the edge. there is no question that this was a make or break moment for governor romney. if he had not shown up like he did in denver, you would have seen a really ugly scene here. a lot of folks in his party would have backed away from him. this puts him back in the game, it restores confidence among other people running for the house and senate this year who are now happy to be seen with him. it gives them a real boost when they desperately need i
big bird! romney could have water boarded aladdin, put down blue, deported dora the explorer, and still won walking away. romney won with the sound up. >> you're entitled, as a president, to your own airplane and house, but not to your own facts. >> romney won with the sound off. dude, he's yelling at you. look up! look up! what are you looking at? what are you writing that's so important? what are you doing? oh, that's nice. i didn't realize. that is impressive work. i didn't realize that. maybe you could give that to mitt romney as a souvenir of night he crushed you in that debate. >> that is some nice work. stephen colbert dancing with "glee" last night. can we listen to this? here's colbert coming into the studio after the romney debate performance. ♪ really feeling it with colbert. he zeroed in on the tax plan romney laid out. the proposal was a bit difference from the one prom romney previously pitched on the trail. >> before the debate, mitt's campaign said, romney will come across as empathetic. but here's what mitt's been promising for the last two years. tax cuts
bird. cracking down on him. elmo's made a run for the border. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again. but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street." >> reporter: now, the president also poked fun -- the president also poked fun at his own lackluster debate performance. he was talking about the performers that you listed at the top of the show. how they performed flawlessly night after night. >> big bird, the center of attention. big bird's all over the place. the president has more events planned in california. but all of these are fund-raisers, right? >> reporter: yeah. the majority. he does have one unveiling of a national monument here in northern california. actually, he'll do that tomorrow. but the bulk, the most important focus of this trip is all about fund-raising. as you pointed out, almost $10 million. $9.5 million, in fact. this is money, again, this campaign believes they need to be competitive in the key battleground states. >> dan lothian, thank you very much. >>> the president's challenger was hard at work, too. supporters turning out in port st.
in port st. lucie for mitt romney. it's up and down a swing state. he pointed to one of the key differences between his and president obama's plan. >> if he is elected, he will install obama care. and your premiums will go up above what they are on your current plan. that's according to the general budget office. i will control the costs in health care by repealing and replacing obama care with real reforms. >>> let's get to another presidential election. this one in south america. and election day is today. venezuela, where that man you're about to see, president hugo chavez has been in power for 13 years now. that's chavez voting today, trying for another term. there is no limit to the number of terms a president can serve there. chavez himself made that rule. but analysts say if anyone can unseat this president, it's the man facing him today. a 40-year-old governor. let's get to caracas right now. paula, it's after 9:00 p.m. polls were scheduled to close hours ago. but they're still open. what's going on? >> reporter: a few are still open. if you were in any polling station,
romney was down double digit. >> he was down in ohio, certainly. i don't know about double digits. notice news organization which spent all the money doing the state polls, we have not had one poll since the debate talking about the effect, favorability and other things. i will say this: one of the things that has happened, the race has the disconnect -- romney should you'd this, the $200 million or more spent making him into an eager and the president never made the charges. i would be out there torpedoing obama's add very advertising, why won't he say it himself? >> i put up the real clear politics electoral map because there are changes. 251-181. you need 270. president obama is in the heed. he did have, can you put up the electoral college map in he did have ohio. that now is in the contested column. romney loses month, both move to swing states. talk to us about this, congressman? >> it is what we have been saying. if romney heals himself, and he went a long way in doing, it will affect the national picture and all the states will go in line with that. he has done that. here is the t
post." the latest poll shows among likely voters the president leads 49% to 46% for romney. that's down net two points from two weeks ago when the president was up by five. to what to you attribute the movement, chuck todd? >> well, first of all, the more important number has always been the president sitting at 49% or 50%. i would go through his job approval rating at 49%, his ballot test at 49%, those converge, and that's what matters and 49% puts you in the, quote, re-elect zone. what's affecting romney, this is something we've been watching there is an enthusiasm gap among core republican voters among core democratic groups. overall there's a ten-point advantage among those republicans who call themselves nines or tens when on a scale of one to ten asked how interested they are in this election. there's been a ten-point gap pretty consistent all year. that's why for instance on the registered voter number, the president has a seven-point lead and it shrinks more than in half down to three, because the republican vote is more enthusiastic and they get through our likely voter screens
on the campaign trail as president obama and mitt romney hunkers down and prepares for wednesday's debate. a new abc news/"washington post" poll shows a very tight race. so both campaigns see tomorrow night as a big opportunity. this presidential campaign has been going on for nearly two years and finally it's debate season for the nominees. the time when americans seem to really start paying attention. president obama's rehearsing with senator john kerry and mitt romney is squaring off against senator rob portman. both candidates have challenges and checklists. president obama's working on shorter answers, trying to avoid sounding like the professor he was before the white house. democrats say he needs to look strong and forceful and not appear irritated or impatient. >> they're trying to get him into the mode of being able to answer questions, short, concisely, and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms and his style and the way he comes across as opposed to information in this. >> reporter: and mitt romney? he has to seem relatable, especially after his 47% comment. how can h
that throughout the debate. mr. obama kept looking down while romney was making points or are criticizing him or attacking him. brett, i got to think that is debate 101 that you would tell your candidate always assume you are on camera and that they are looking at you even if the other guy is speaking. >> you know, it is funny, though, chris, the debate history, presidential debate history is replete with examples of where candidates don't pay attention to how they look and say things and are only worried about what they say. audiences tell us they take as much as 65% of the meaning from how candidates or how people say things. you have the famous george bush looking at his watch or al gore sighing in the debate. and this time around we have the president who seems to be disinterested, who seems to be irritated and not focused on the debate. >> chris: what do you tell a candidate to do when the other guy is speaking or even attacking? >> well, you know, certainly you can take notes, you can look out at the audience but every now and then you need to look at your opponent. it is kind of odd if
in virginia. he had been down four or five before. the bad news for romney in these three polls is that in ohio, a state that is critical, romney strategists think they have to win florida and ohio to get to 270 electoral votes. he's still down eight percentage points, and what we've seen across these polls is that obama is increasingly competitive with romney on who would do best to handle the economy. but the fact that we've got a little bit of movement nationally and movement in florida and virginia tells me that there's still some play in this electorate, in this contest, and that's the hope for romney going into this debate tonight. >> what do you think happened in florida versus in ohio? because for a while, they were both tracking. i mean, florida by the gallup poll, he was down by nine points, romney was. what happened in florida? >> there was a poll last week that showed florida down nine for romney. i think that's too high. the campaign has begun advertising -- the romney campaign, that is, advertising more heavily in florida than they had been previousism we see in ou
, how mitt romney and president barack obama are preparing as they count down the hours to tomorrow night. 90 minutes of drama should we say. >> not to mention, want to be a fly in the room, listening to the prep. if he says this, you say this. stand like this. talk like that. the prep must be fascinating behind the scenes. >> would love to hear the commentary as they're looking at their appropriate in previous debates. just the things they would say about them. >> political theater in full effect tomorrow night. >>> a health concern near and dear to our insomniac viewers, this is for sure, we'll bring you new, pretty eye-opening research into teens who are sleep deprived. something we can relate to especially coming off a little miniweekend vacation. >> basically anything positive out of sleep deprivation. >> the news is never good for our life expectancy on the shift. >> this is kind of good. extreme eats, ordinary foods with an extreme edge. i will introduce you to guys making pickles like nobody else's business. hey, insomniacs, paula here with al, the pickle pro. we are making
you see is about a three point gain for romney. if that holds and if that uniformly filtering down to the battleground states, romney would still trail in iowa, ohio and alabama and obama would have a slight advantage ♪ electoral college. >> continuing our theme of what really matters, let's talk about the polls. obviously, polls don't vote. but do they sway the electorate? do they see one person as leading or gaining and some people decide to change their vote? is there some science on do polls actually shape the election itself? >> i don't think there's very much evidence that polls shift the election. if they did, i think we would see, you know, a clearer sign of that. what i think the public reacts to that is momentum, i think a lot of voters are like the people that aren't sure or are sure what they want for dinner but won't say it in a crowd necessarily. when someone says what they want, they jump out and say i want kfc tonight. >> i'm so glad you said that, because that sounds delicious. >> a lot of voters after the debates aren't sure whether they like bahama that much or
and mitt romney. obama with a slight edge. 49-47%. but also in this survey, it delves down into the expectations game for this debate. what can you tell me about those numbers, peter? >> reporter: despite what chris christie said, and that is sort of another mixed message coming out of the romney campaign, romney is winning the expectations game if you look at the polls. more likely to win the debate, president obama 55%. mitt romney just 31% of likely voters expect him to win the debate. that's a good place to be for him going in there, but like you said, there's a lot of stuff in this poll. sort of mirrors what we've seen in a lot of recent national and state polls. president obama has advantages on a range of issues, however, one thing tilting in romney the direction. interesting numbers in the poll. which candidate are you confident will get the country back ton track economically? president obama, 47%. mitt romney, 51%. now, obama's had an edge on the economy in a lot of recent polls by a narrow one, two-point margin. not that much difference. interesting nonetheless m
in the all important swing state. >> yeah, governor romney and his wife were down in florida yesterday campaigning hard and getting a pretty good reception. let's look at ann romney with some of the voters yesterday. >> every year, the median income in america-- >> and you are a tremendous asset to your husband. >> i appreciate that. you know, i-- we're doing everything we can, my boys, myself just out there working as hard as we can. >> well, i really believe that your husband is going to be-- i think they will have as much as ronald reagan did, he's going to do bet. >> i felt that for a long time. >> well, the wives of course in in race have high approval rating and favor ann romney and favor michelle obama, the wives are a huge asset. >> and president obama was off the campaign trail yesterday and finally celebrating his wedding anniversary, as you know fell on the night of the debate. so mitt romney was unencumbered on the campaign trail. there was no response that the president could give to anything that mitt romney did. and mitt romney seemed to energize after the debate. >> eve
. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again, but he is bringing the hammer down on sesame street. >> reporter: the president also poked fun at his own lack luster debate performance, and he was talking about all the list of performers, how they perform flawlessly night after night and he says that's not something he can say about himself. >> the president has more events planned in california, but all are fundraisers, right? >> reporter: the majority -- he does have one unveiling a national monument in northern california and he will do that tomorrow. but the bulk of the most important focus of the trip is about fund-raising, and $9.45 million to be exact, and this is money, again, that this campaign believes they need to be competitive in the battleground states. >> dan, thank you very much. >>> the president's khchallenge was hard at work today, too. it's his second straight day up and down the critical swing state. he pointed to a different key difference between him and obama's plan. >> with it your premiums will go up an extra $200, according to the congressional budg
of them. so the 17 economists, the way it was broken down, nine picked romney and three picked obama. five of them couldn't commit to anybody because they said, you know what? it doesn't matter because neither one can fix the economy. even some of the romney supporters, they aren't enthusiastic. one of them said romney's policies would be less bad for the economy than obama. so basically, you know, it's the lesser of two evils. not exactly a big sign of confidence here. but some say romney is more likely to have more success getting legislation through congress and supporters of obama say he's more likely to reduce the deficit and cut entitlement spending like social security. but it is kind of sad, carol, it wasn't much excitement for either of them as far as helping the economy one way or the other. >> let's talk about something a little brighter that's happening where you are. the dow's rising. >> it is. this does actually begin the fourth quarter and it looks like stocks are beginning the fourth quarter with gains. stocks were already higher and then came out big sort of granddaddy of
-- >> about 9% down on the president. >> and up to 26% on governor romney. actually, larry kudlow with us as well. >> maria? >> yes, john? >> i want to say, i think you were right about the president being on the defensive. one of the things that came out of the two conventions is that the democrats, bill clinton helped president obama in this, shifted this from a referendum election on president obama's performance to a choice election. i think this -- the effect was to pull it back to a referendum election and put president obama on the defensive. he's the one with the record. and the american public is not in a great mood right now. >> he has to defend that record. that's what he tried to do tonight. governor romney was much more specific in term of his plans going forward. in terms of job creation, tax reform, even in terms of getting back to economic growth. larry kudlow with us as well. larry, what's your take? >> i thought that this was a tremendous victory for romney. this is a different, different romney than the one at the convention. he was specific and crisp and precise and en
't. gerri: well, you have broken it down a little bit for us. obama's deputy campaign manager saying romney never explained how he would pay for his massive new tax cuts for the wealthy. we hear the president hitting home time and time and time again. he keeps saying that romney wants to up raise taxes on the middle-class. it seems to me that that is just ignoring the facts. what do you say? >> it is based on a phony study by the tax policy center at the brookings institution that really made up their assumptions of what that romney plan is. we look at this from a more dynamic effect and see that the romney plan would actually increase economic growth and increase wages across the board which is going to more than offset any sort of reductions that people would see or increases people might see in their taxes. by and large people get a tax cut because after all these cutting tax rates across the board by 20 percent, and the biggest thing that will benefit the economy is also cutting the corporate tax rate. as you know, we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. all these things ad
the top down by mitt romney. >> now, one of the things about barack obama that you know from having worked so closely with him is that sometimes he can be a little professorial, not to put down professors, but in a debate you have to think about the clock and think about the punchy line. is it a challenge for his current team to get him to speak in sound bites? >> well look, i used to joke with him it takes him 30 seconds to clear his throat sometimes. and look, i think -- look there's no doubt that, you know, you've got a very small window of time and brevity is certainly important and as i said earlier, andrea, the president hasn't done these formats in four years. mitt romney has done these pretty recently as part of 20 republican debates, but look, i have no doubt that the president will be well prepared and look, i don't actually think this debate is going to be decided by some snappy zinger or snappy sound bite. i think the american people, particularly the undecided voters that you, chris and mark were talking about, are really looking for these candidates to discuss what they want
my body's going to break down. i don't know mitt romney doesn't care about that. zbr and one of the stars of another video in that series is joan raymonday, president of ask me local 127. thanks for joining us. good morning. >> how are you? >> i'm well. that video has more than a million views on youtube so far. the message is pretty harsh. do you think it's fair? >> i think it, richard hayes is speaking from the heart. i think it's more than fair. we think that mitt romney is out of touch with regular working folk like richard hayes. and he is doesn't care about the 47%. he wants to gut public workers. but we're not the problem. to us, the problem is these big tax policies that gives breaks for the super rich. so we just wanted to go and show what a regular working class person picks up trash every day, very hard job. and is representative of the struggles that are going on today for many, many workers in america. and we want to defend the middle class. >> well, when mitt romney was governor of massachusetts, he spent a series of days doing jobs with people who were regular
for the border. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again but he's bringing the hammer down on sesame street. >> reporter: the president also poked fun at his own lackluster debate performance. he was talking about those performers that you listed at the top of your show. how they perform flawlesses night after night and that's not something he can say about himself. >> big bird is all over the place. the president has more events planned in california but all of these are fund-raisers? >> reporter: the majority does have an unveiling of a national monument. he'll do that tomorrow. the focus of this trip is all about fund raising. $9.45 million to be exact. this is money that this campaign believes they need to be competitive in the key battleground states. >> thank you very much. the president's challenger was hard at work today too. how republican voters turning out in big numbers today for their candidate, mitt romney. today he pointed to one of key differences between his and president obama's plan. sg if he's reelected he will install obama care and with it your premium
on wednesday night where the two candidates showed down and show that choice between what mitt romney would do in the white house over the next four years or what president obama would do if re-elected. >> poeshltyly. nine out of the ten key battleground states. now romney has actually -- he has debated almost 20 times in the primary season. how does he actually change people's impression of him? particularly his likability factor. >> and we've seen that he has a little bit of a deficit, yovrl, when it comes to likability, when it comes to his favorable and unfavorable numbers compared to the president in a lot of these polls. yeah, i think part of -- a little bit of what he is going to try to do is show more of the human face, and we've seen him try to do that on the campaign trail as well. go back to that number, though. you just showed that. that is a brand new poll from abc news and the washington post, suzanne. they asked, simple as this, who is more likely to win the debates. >> with the exception of just a few cases, usually the debates don't usually change the game. we have more than h
